Labour market access

Semi-skilled occupations will no longer be eligible for the Regional Sponsored Migration Scheme under “special circumstances”. If employers wish to nominate foreign semi-skilled workers for permanent residence, they will need to negotiate a labor agreement, which usually takes 4 to 6 months to complete.
